excuse me, system? (in General)

Flamey June 20 2007 4:14 AM EDT

<system> [mail:] You've been removed from the list of Mentors since you haven't been in chat much lately. You're welcome to re-volunteer if you have time to chat after all.

Umm, what? I got this while I was in chat. I go on chat pretty often, I think people know that and I do talk to everyone.

So, what gives?

IndependenZ June 20 2007 4:25 AM EDT

There have been numerous complaints about you, Flamey. We just thought it would be better to not let you influence new players. We were kinda hoping you'd take that chatmail as a valid answer, but no...

Just kidding Flamey ;)

Flamey June 20 2007 4:37 AM EDT

last time I checked there were 40 or so mentors.

Now there are 6..?

same here!

Phrede June 20 2007 4:45 AM EDT

Dont worry guys - Jon's getting ready to move the old Mentor list across to CB3 when he finally gets it finished :)

QBJohnnywas June 20 2007 4:59 AM EDT

You broke the mentor system Flamey!

Flamey June 20 2007 5:22 AM EDT

hey... Smallpau1 brokes it too :)

{CB1}Lukeyman June 20 2007 6:26 AM EDT

Looks like only the best of us were kept :) haha

QBOddBird June 20 2007 8:08 AM EDT

Sweeeet, maybe we're gonna have a re-evaluation of the mentors so only those who really oughta be mentoring do so?

I was chatting and playing as much as I ever have - at least a few hours a day. I was removed from the list of mentors, and I also hadn't been getting any mentees despite the fact I was almost always in chat, mostly not idle. I see there are now 5 mentees overall, instead of the near 100 there used to be on a normal basis.

Flamey June 20 2007 8:17 AM EDT

yeah, I think it does it by how many mentees you get. There haven't been many so heaps of us have been left menteeless for a long time, maybe thats why.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] June 20 2007 10:32 AM EDT

53 new users in the past 24 hours
yet the mentor with the most mentees has only 2?

A bug maybe? :|

Not every new user completes the tutorial. Some are much faster to notice the lack of graphics and give up before being assigned a mentor ;)

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] June 20 2007 11:23 AM EDT

Glad to see I'm not the only one with this problem :) Been a week without getting any mentees when I am very often in chat and active.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] June 20 2007 12:40 PM EDT

I got removed from mentor list as well, so I wouldn't feel too bad Flamey. Kinda made me mad, as I've been a mentor since the mentor program first started. Oh well.

BootyGod June 20 2007 12:43 PM EDT

Eh.. just rejoin. I saw the message and ignored it. I know I chat, I know I help my mentees and all new players who ask for it. So just rementor yourselves until whatever it is doesn't happen again =D

SundariZelia [The Knighthood] June 20 2007 2:18 PM EDT

I didn't get a mentor when I joined and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Ancient Anubis June 21 2007 6:34 AM EDT

u can complete the tutorial and choose not to have a mentor by the way. I chose not and i'm sure others did to.

Flamey June 21 2007 6:50 AM EDT

"u can complete the tutorial and choose not to have a mentor by the way. I chose not and i'm sure others did to."

Umm, what? Since when?

I thought everyone was auto-assigned a mentor, whether they use them or not.

Ancient Anubis June 21 2007 11:25 AM EDT

no cause i wasn't assigned to one and i'm not the only one

It does not appear to be broken

Flamey June 23 2007 6:16 PM EDT

Are we just lacking A LOT of new players, recently?

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] June 23 2007 6:59 PM EDT

Are we? Yes, we are.

New Players Forum has been awfully quiet and the number of active players this week is rather low, at 350.

Eurynome Bartleby [Bartleby's] June 24 2007 10:26 AM EDT

May I also point out that the person with the most students right now has only 2?

That I have been in chat almost 100% of the time for two days and received no mentees?

There is no way players just stopped coming, bang, just like that.

Maybe I am missing something?

QBOddBird June 24 2007 10:29 AM EDT

No Ash, just watch the NP chatroom - there are VERY few new players joining the game. We need more advertising!
